Usually cook for a cast of many, therefore the buffet. Right now, for a few days, there’s just the three of us. Plated dinner it is. When you’re kind of wondering what to serve and you really don’t know what time it will happen, a relaxed tuna nicoise plated dinner can fill a Thursday night dinner quite nicely.
Stop in at your local market and when the fresh tuna looks good, go for it. Pick up some watercress, green beans, your kind of black olives, maybe some market made potato salad, boil up some eggs, make a champagne vinegar, dijon mustard, salt, pepper, and olive oil vinaigrette, a loaf or two of fresh bread, a little wine, sear the tuna on a hot grill quickly and you are all set.
Every day dress does a plated dinner, on an every day Thursday.
